The 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event final table was played over the weekend. Dan Shak brought the largest stack to the final table (3.7 million) and fellow high-stakes pro Patrik Antonius was ranked 3rd (3.3 million). Shak was sent packing in 4th place, which left Joseph Cabret (8.1 million), Patrick Antonius (5.2 million) and Mervin Chan (4.9 million) fighting for the title!
Antonius had shoved a couple of times late on Day 5 and never failed to scare his opponents and pick up the pots, but now he picked a bad spot and lost almost everything.
Mervin Chan opened for 325k from the button, Antonius betted 4.96 million from the small blind. Cabret folded and Chan called right away.
The board ran out 986k6 and Chan took home the pot of about 10,000,000! Patrik Antonius was left with only 160k and busted within a few minutes. After a short break, the heads-up between Mervin Chan and Joseph Cabret started. Only a few hands into the heads-up a winner was determined!
Mervin Chan raised to 320k and Cabret three-bet to 860k. Chan called and the flop came down 873. Both players checked. Next card was the 8 and Cabret bet 1.2 million. Chan raised to 3 million, and Cabret announced that he was all in. Chan snap-called and showed 86. Cabret showed A3 for a flush draw. The k on the river gave Mervin Chan, 29, of Malaysia the title and AU$1,600,000. Cabret received AU$1,000,000 for his second place.
